, india and pakistan, they are not bound by the treaty, but iran is. iran violated that treaty in approximate a series of different respects and iran has been sanctioned by the united nations for those violations. the sanctions are too weak to cause a change in iran's behavior, but at least it it demonstrates iran has violated the treaty responsibilities. the fact is that while iran has the right to develop electricity from nuclear power plants, they are flaring their natural gas they could generate electricity for a couple kilo watt. >> host: why are they? >> guest: they have no way to export it, liquiified natural gas plant to markets. >> host: back to afghanistan, full page, photograph for afghans, a new test of democracy, their presidential election. their elections are coming up in 10 days, i believe august 20th. what are your hopes for the election? >> guest: a fair and free election would be outstanding step toward building afghanistan as a state. i can't tell you that i'd vote for this candidate or that can d candidate? >> host: is karz ai the best candidate to hav

-- the manufacturing jobs that were in america and were moved to countries like india and china. i think that they are experiencing an industrial revolution much like what we saw in the 20th-century. i think that they are developing a middle-class while we are losing our middleclass. i also think that for an economy to do well, there has to be a strong middle-class. that is indicative when you look at consumer spending indexes. we just don't have the money. we don't have the dollars because we don't have manufacturing jobs that developed are middle-class. guest: that is exactly right. that is the essence of the book, which is that china and india have replicated the success in developing this industrialized economy. by opening of their labor force to more exploitation, it does speak to the myth of gdp. you have a growth but poverty grows at the same time. the loss of manufacturing jobs is really such a central element to both this recession and the declining living standards in terms of the exploitation of people, but declining marriage rates, unraveling of our society and many other cou
is the most cluttered room in the house i tend to be a little more austere but from pakistan or india or an iraq or indonesia weird you end up? but they do have some hidden values religion fascinates me but the southeast asia and religion figure of buddha telling us to be gave ourselves put strings around it is a begging bowl from afghanistan. the work is a very fine and if you look you do not want to polish to something like this. my mother gave me these because we're a little when we were children we had some. it is a reminder of when we were kids. they are called britons, these little mental soldiers. but the most important thing in this room, by far, even more important than books, pictures of my wife. they are all over the house. she is slavic but when i write, my goal is not to disappoint not to dismay i do not want to make per angry but my test really is and i have written a sufficiently honestly with enough integrity to pass the catherine mcintyre peters test roi also have another test at penn state as the underground -- undergrad in the late '60s when it was voted number one
the economy, reduce the number of jobs, weaken the businesses, guarantee that china and india will outcompete us in of the world market and the only alternative to that is real change. you're not going to be able to get cleverly from here to a better future, as long as the system, whether it's at the state level or the federal level is dominated by structures of special interest, whose entire future is a function of bigger bureaucracies, more spending and higher taxes, so i hope i've at least made 18 nibble case that what we need is a dramatic level of change. what i would like to do is take a five minute break and come back for c-span, but i appreciate you giving us this much time to outline the initials, and then we'll start with questions right after the break.

paper. this really funny video from india. this is a cab driver who has perfected the art of driving backwards. he does this with every single person. he had a problem with his car. he returned from a party and there was a fault where the reverse gear was the only thing that worked. this is his primary source of income so the guy was like if i can only go backwards i better learn how to drive backwards. now he can go 50 miles an hour driving backwards. he renamed the car the back gear champian. just develop new skill. >> new york taxi drivers can't even drive front way. >> it's further evidence it's the year of the indian. >> it is. >> let's go to the u.k. where this is an interesting approach -- >> i'm going to eat it if no one else is. >> you know on amusement park rides and your arms go up and you go whoo-hoo, that's been banned at a specific theme park in the u.k. because of body odor. basically they're saying is going to get hot here, up to 84 degrees. managers expect -- she's sniffing her armpit, isn't she? >> it looks like say no to bo. i wouldn't have gotten it. >> they're sa

the same health care and food as boys. in india, for example, girls are less likely to be vaccinated that be boys and are take on the the hospital only when they are sicker. the girls in india from 1 to 5 years of age are 50% more likely to die than boys their age. in addition, ultra sound machines have allowed a pregnant woman to find out the sex of her own fetus and then get an abortion if it's female. the global statistics on the abuse of girls are numbing. it appears that more girls and women are now missing from the planet precisely because they are female than men were killed on the batting field in all of the wars of the 20th century. so with a new administration in power and with a female woman heading the state department, how should u.s. priorities on women's issues internationally change? guest: the secretary of state hillary clinton is doing a marvelous job of highlighting the issue of women's equality around the world. one thing that we need to do in this country is the united states senate needs to ratify the united nations women's convention, the convention on the elim

scene? >> first of all, if we want to save the american manufacturing, to compete with china and india, the government needs to help manufacturing, not hammer them. this california metals co. is a good example of what has been happening. their staff is down about half. energy costs are so expensive, they start running this furnace at 9:00 at night. a report coming from the milken institute saying california has lost more than 15,000 manufacturing jobs for the last six years. why? high taxes, heavy regulation, and a hostile legislator. basically, they take scrap copper and brass here, and turn it into battle to sell to other companies. a lot of the manufacturing has been producing some bad odors down the street, so now they are asking them to retrofit some of these jobs. jane: who was your favorite character on gilligan's island? i believe you are a marianne guy. she gave her fans a chance to own television history. she auctioned off a few items from her home. why did she think that the show made such an impact on american pop culture? >> there was no time. everybody wanted to be on a i

, and they want to continue to compete with india and china, they may need to change their regulations. martha: how do they think they can fix these problems? >> the legislator needs to look at how this will affect their manufacturing base. by the end of world war ii, one out of three jobs was in manufacturing. now it is one out of 10. also, there should be a deadline. if you tell me to do this, the government should have a deadline to get the permit done. if you cannot get it done, i should get a discount on the fees that the government had to pay. basically, making the government live up to their promises. martha: it would have to work both ways. the government should have to be accountable for their own deadlines as well. >> that is right. if not, the state would lose read it -- revenue. they could be strung along forever. trace: in the meantime, breaking news from baja, california. there was an earthquake that struck their. the first earthquake am was 45 minutes ago. that one was moderate, 5.8 magnitude. the second one was massive, 6.9. the earthquake in northridge california was 6.7. befo
